Oh I really want to read this one. Sounds like good entertainmemt. tyank you for the reveiw. Indeed Samson was married before he was with Delilah, and there is nothing that says he was married to Delilah.
That's true! Thanks for your comment.

This really throws a monkey wrench into our mental image of Samson! While some of the depictions of Baal worship might be uncomfortable, they are probably quite accurate! I enjoyed your thoughtful comments about the artwork. Great review!

I didn't know anything apart from the Delilah story before, so it was interesting to learn something new. Thanks for reading and commenting!

While I am not a religious person, this sounds like a very interesting take on a story that meshes with Biblical teaching. I'm very intrigued by your review. Great job!

This is an amazing religious biblical comic graphic novel set on the story of Samson at the height of his power and youth. The book is temporarily free on Amazon Kindle and has an inciteful OnlineBookClub review. I rated It 4 out of 4 stars. Congrats @viamlegend on the BOTD.

I enjoy reading comics or graphic novels, and no doubt this one sounds interesting. I always keep an open mind when it comes to different cultures and religions but unfortunately this one isn't something I'd be prone to read. I did however find the review interesting though so thank you.

I am not used to reading comics, but I would like to start with this one. The free giveaway is an additional incentive for that. I believe that I will love this book. Congratulations on being BOTD

I am curious to find out how a tale from the Bible is woven into the Greek mythology. Abrahamic in pantheistic sounds interesting. Thanks for the review. Will check this out for sure! And congratulations on BOTD!
Books may well be the only true magic.

I’m not sure about this one. Sounds a little confusing but intriguing to me. I’ll reserve judgment on this one. Thanks for your review!

To be honest, I had no prior knowledge regarding Samson and Adriana, but I was surprised that it depicted aspects from the Bible. The fact that women are depicted as evil and there is full-frontal nudity will deter me from reading this book. Thanks for the detailed review!

A compilation of seven comics where a different story of Samson is raised than the one we know most, including his first wife named Adriana. Without a doubt, an interesting story.

I believe I will pass on this one. My own spiritual beliefs would cause me to be seriously offended by the intertwining of Greek mythology and Christianity.
I cannot change the past because it is gone and I cannot tell what tomorrow will be like as it has not happened. What I can do is live today as life is happening now.
